Freaky Friday

Our fishie-tank has the unusal types of little swimmy fishies.  But it also has 1 BIG one.  And that BIG one is pretty ugly (and a bit freaky) too.
Its called a Plecostomus.  TBT says it is real ancient and can get REAL big in the wild tropical rivers.
Its about 8 inches long.  TBT had one like it some years ago an had to give it away to someone with a really bigger fishie-tank.  This one may have ta go soon too.  And he says that will be the last of these guys here.  They grow too big too fast.

My human likes those guys - she never could remember their real name, so she just calls them big sucker fish.

Yuk! It does look like a big monster! I won't be commenting much for a couple of weeks but it doesn't mean I have forgotten you. Mum doesn't like to advertise it on my blog because you never know who is looking at it, but I have been deserted for a while.

What a cool fish. Do you have a salt water or fresh water aquarium? We thinks it is really neat. The Mom used to have a fresh water aquarium when she was a teenager. That was like a 100 billion years ago, but she misses having one sometimes.
